For a few days there has been hope that Kayla Muella might still be alive but today, confirmation of her death in Syria has come through. My heart goes out to all her family. Kayla was friends with my niece in Prescott, Arizona and my sister has written very movingly about her here. Click on the red link to read Daisy’s tribute and to see her painting in honour of Kayla.
